“YOU ARE NOT A WOMAN”: DISPOSABLE MOTHERS AND THE CLANDESTINE BABY FACTORIES IN NIGERIA
My thesis ““You are not a Woman”: Disposable Mothers and The Clandestine Baby Factory in Nigeria”, will seek to address the exclusion and marginalization of infertile (barren) women, their experiences and voices from the ‘cult of motherhood’. The thesis is also a rallying cry for education, sensitization and action against the clandestine baby factories in Nigeria. In this regard, I will use a screen play which will give an authentic account of this on-going assault on young unsuspecting women, bringing to light the driving force behind baby factories. The screen play which in future will be filmed and used for advocacy to conscientize the general public (communities, government agencies, media practioners, churches, traditional rulers, and students.) on the negative implications of forced motherhood both on the women and their babies, with the intention of bringing about the desired change in the demand chain of this business.
